Today, Jadakiss‘ new album, Top 5 Dead Or Alive, is in stores, and in commemoration of his long-awaited return, he graces the cover of our 2015 Holiday Issue.

Yesterday, just hours after we unveiled the cover to the world, Jadakiss took the stage at Stage 48 to perform his classic records–some new, some old–to a packed house thirsty to see the man that gave them “Why,” that “Made U Look” remix verse, and the most famous laugh in the history of rap.


Just before Kiss took the stage, our SourceTV cameras were backstage with Puff Daddy, Swizz Beatz, Styles P, Lil Cease, Lil’ Flip, Ne-Yo, and of course, Jadakiss himself. Here’s some exclusive footage from one of the most memorable nights on the NY Hip-Hop scene in quite some time.
